Chinese Spy Suspect Pleads Guilty to Violating NASA Rules

A Chinese spy suspect pleaded guilty to violating computer-use rules of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration after prosecutors said they didn’t find any secret information on his electronic devices.

Bo Jiang, who was indicted March 20 for allegedly making false statements to the U.S. after being pulled from a plane as he was about to depart for China, admitted yesterday in federal court in Newport News, Virginia, to downloading sexually explicit images onto his NASA laptop in violation of agency rules, a misdemeanor.
